Happy Sunday!!

Today was BEEE -U - TI-FUL outside and the perfect weather to catch up on some LOOOOOOOOOG over due photos of all the JUNK Mr.OTM and I scored on our

recent covert junk mission!

Get settled, go grab some coffee, tea, diet what-ever and get comfy cuz there are ALOT of pics!

Grab some kleenex while you're at it or maybe a paper towel even cuz I am warnin ya.....

these are DROOL WORTHY (not so much the photos...the JUNK...*wink*!)

Are you ready? Let's get started! I was desperate for some BIG pieces....I was totally on the hunt for cupboards and cabinets! This one is terrific! Nice and heavy and CHIPPY! The mirror is a heavy ole sucker too! The little wagon wheels were just so cute. Mr.OTM doesn't know why I bought them. I don't know why I bought them but I LOVE UM! This OLD CHIPPY wrought iron gate is beyond wonderful! LOOK at the colors! This one was a given because of the three little drawers....
what is it about drawers???
A stack of yumminess! I scored 5 of these old creamy chippy file drawers. Nice thing is...they aren't heavy!
I had to cough up 25 pennies for this adorable salt and pepper set.
Another outstanding cupboard! Do you need to go get another kleenex? One piece of glass is missing but we'll get her a new one. Old rusty iron garden table and little chippy cream metal garden table are perfect sizes for the booths.
Old tool box, what not shelf, milk can and washboard.....chippy heaven!
LOVE the rope handle....
SUPER cupboard number three! THANK GOODNESS we found some big pieces! Now... have you noticed the adorable little old white garden cart yet? I FREAKED OUT when I saw this! One of those deals where you see it.....you want it....no matter what it costs kinda thing???? Have ya been there?? Well thank goodness this only cost an arm and not a leg too.
The old wire basket is filled with rag balls used to make braided rugs. The whole bag cost .50 cents.
Now here is one of my absolute favorite pieces! I'll admit...the colors are COLORFUL and you all know me.....BUT...all we saw when we bought it was coral and white. When Mr.OTM started sanding it , all these other colors started peeking through and WOW!
I fell in love with it!
What a PERFECT piece for a kitchen island OR potting bench!!
This little blue chest was already painted this shabby color! YIPPEE! All I need to do is add some knobs.
I already had one of these cupboards last year and loved it. I was super lucky to find another one!
I did cart wheels when I found this old drop leaf! Thank goodness I found a table. Tables were the HOT item these last two months!

This bench stopped me in my tracks. Someone handpainted all this!! The chippy bench is all original and the art work is beautiful.
LOVE the bird...
The time this must have took!

OH the NEST!! And that's on the back! YOU'VE got to see this one in person. You will love it too!
Antique feed sack quilt in sherbet colors!
all hand tied and in great condition...
metal birdbath...
old granite ware funnel and feed sack....
chippy blue childs chair that is completely falling apart.....with a little glue it's on the mend!
Metal warming lamps! I got 4 of these and can't wait to show you what we are gonna do with these!

WHEW! Well there ya go. Believe it or not this is just the beginning of what we brought home. I still have to unpack alot of the smalls! Ironstone, metal hooks, etc......! I'll be taking pics of those too , do don't worry!! LOL!!




NOW.....off to do some pricing!
